New ultra high performance tyre from Kumho

Show Navigation Menu


Kumho has gone all-out with its new Ecsta PS91 ultra high performance tyre to create what it describes as the “most advanced tyre it has ever produced”

Designed for top-end performance cars such as the Ferrari 458, Lamborghini Aventador, Porsche Carrera, AMG C63 and Audi R8, the Ecsta PS91 was developed with a brief “to hold nothing back and create the ultimate super high performance road tyre.”

The tyres uses the latest generation silica compound, while employing newly developed “dimple” technology to dissipate heat and cool the tread. Ecsta PS91 tyres also use sidewalls and tread blocks that are “stiffer than conventional Ultra - High Performance tyres” to handle the high stress loads.

The new Kumhos also have different tread patterns at front and rear to cope with the differing requirements. Kumho says “The front tyres have been designed to provide the most agile cornering and cope with the sudden forces of braking while the rear tread optimises drive off turns.”

According to Kumho Tyre Australia national marketing and training manager David Basha, the new tyre is a result of “the direct application of motor sport technology”.

Kumho is tyre provider for events such as the Auto GP, the French Formula 4 series, Masters of Formula 3, China Touring Car Championship and Germany's VLN endurance series. In Australia, it is the sole tyre supplier to the Kumho V8 Touring Cars series, Formula 3 championship and the Australia Rally Championship.


MRT's preferred choice of tyre is Kumho. We currently run them on our development Mitsubishi Evo X, Subaru BRZ and Brett's Subaru diesel turbo rally Forester just to name a few.
